Etta Apatite earrings are hand-crafted from hammered solid raw copper wire, smooth neon blue Apatite, and on Niobium hypoallergenic ear wires.
Apatite is a magnificent stone boasting rich color. Many know apatite to be helpful with purging negativity, both mental and spiritual. It is also often associated with animals as the mineral it is made of it commonly found in animal bones, teeth, antlers, horns, etc. Apatite is the stone associated with the Throat Chakra. Not a traditional birthstone, it is beneficial to those born under the Pisces and Gemini zodiac signs.
Copper has been known for centuries and in many cultures to have healing properties. Because of its electrical properties, some people believe it has an energizing quality of its own that can be absorbed through wearing it. That same energy is believed to improve flexibility, mobility, and the wearer's luck.
Copper can change color due to a chemical reaction with the air and/or skin. There is a long-standing belief that some individuals are allergic to copper, but this is actually very rare. Keeping your jewelry clean and dry will help prevent any skin discoloration. Avoid applying anything but jewelry wax to seal your jewelry (despite rumors, nail polish should be avoided).
These earrings measure approximately 2” in drop length (including the ear wire).
